GDPR includes your data protection rights and legal remedies in detail. You can anytime request information on your data, you can anytime request the rectification, erasure or restriction of processing your data, you can object against data processing (contact data) based on legitimate interest. Below the most important provisions are summarised.

Right to information: If the controller processes personal data concerning you, the controller shall provide you with information, even if you do not request this, such as the most important characteristics of data processing, the purposes, legal basis, period of data processing, the person and contact details of the controller and its representative (in the case of transfer to third countries with reference to the appropriate or suitable safeguards), in the case of data processing based on legitimate interest about the legitimate interest of the controller and/or the third party, and your rights and legal remedies related to data processing (including the right to submit a complaint with the supervisory authority), if you do not yet possess that information.

The controller provides you with the information by making the present information note available to you.

Right to access: You shall have the right to receive a feedback from the controller concerning whether your personal data are being processed or not and if they are being processed, you shall have the right to obtain access to the personal data and specific pieces of information in connection with the data processing including the purpose of data processing, the categories of personal data of the data subject, the recipients of personal data, the (planned) period of data processing, the rights and legal remedies of the data subject and in the case of data gathered from the data subject the pieces of information referring to the source thereof. On your request, the controller provides you with a copy of the personal data undergoing processing. The controller may charge you with a reasonable fee for further copies requested by you that are based on administrative costs. The right to obtain a copy may not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. You shall be informed about the possibility of obtaining a copy, its form, its possible costs and other details by the controller on your request.

Right to rectification: You shall have the right to make the data processor rectify the inaccurate personal data concerning you without undue delay. Taking into account the purpose of the data processing, you shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

Right to erasure: You shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay if specific conditions apply. Among others, if the controller shall erase your personal data on your request if the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to which the processing is based and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing; or your personal data have been unlawfully processed; you object against the processing and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing; the deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject; the personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services.

Right to restriction of processing: You have the right to require the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions applies: a) you dispute the accuracy of your personal data; in which case processing may be restricted during the period it takes for the controller to verify the accuracy of the data; b) the processing is unlawful and you object against the deletion of the personal data and request a restriction of the use of the personal data instead; c) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or d) you have objected against the data processing for the period until it is determined that the legitimate interests of the controller overrides your legitimate interests. In case the processing of your personal data was subject to restriction, and notwithstanding their storage, such data shall only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of claims or for the procurement of the protection of rights of a natural or legal person or for purposes of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

In case the restriction of processing has been executed in accordance with the above, you shall be informed by the controller prior to the cancellation of such restriction.


Objection to data processing: The data subject can object anytime against data processing based on legitimate interests during the period of processing. In the case of objection, the controller limits the data processing substantially verifying the objection and determines whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject. Afterwards the controller, due to the coercive power of their legitimate interest, shall continue the processing of data, even if you object against the processing (the automatic recording of certain data of visitors to the website). In the evaluation of the objection, the controller shall verify what facts, circumstances or reasonable grounds the data subject has submitted (that the controller has possibly failed to consider when designing the data processing operations), and as required shall amend the process of data processing with a consideration of the objection. The controller shall execute the so amended data processing for all the data subjects uniformly and shall inform the data subjects about the change on the circumstances of the processing.


The controller provides the requested information without undue delay but within one month from the receipt of the request at the latest about the measures taken based on your request related to your rights listed previously. That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of the requests.
